What a horrid movie.
Yet another sophomoric love story, Roja Malare is literally unwatchable. This most wretched movie left us in a sputtering rage at the end of this misadventure.
Roja Malare's lead pair Murali and Reeva are clueless in the acting department. How they landed their respective roles
boggles our imagination. Neither of them brings forth the glittering freshness that can sometimes make even commonplace
movies watchable in parts.
Besides the inept performance by the lead pair, virtually every other element of Roja Malare screams amateur. As is the case
with most Tamil movies, the story is the main villain. A banal plot that's been beaten to death in scores of Indian movies
leaves very little hope of any entertainment.
The music is as bad as the other parts of this awful movie.
If there is any talent at all in any of the cast members, it's kept well hidden from the hapless viewers.
Kannan (Murali) is the lead singer in a small music group. He meets Malar (Reeva), a rich student, while performing at a
function in her college. It's love at sight for him but not so for the young girl.
The thought of Malar haunts his every waking moment when fate out of the blue deals Kannan what he thinks is a lucky hand. In
reality, it's a prank played by Malar. When Malar accidentally receives the photo of a prospective bride sent by Kannan's
mother to her son, she substitutes her picture in the envelope. Kannan is delirious with joy believing his mother has picked
the girl of his dreams for him.
However, his dreams are shattered when he visits Malar's house to ask for her hand only to learn that she's just got engaged to Arun (Arun Pandiyan) and that the photo was just a prank. Adding to his misery, Kannan is thrown out of Malar's house.
Our hero is now thrown into a downward spiral of depression pining for Malar. Things get worse for Kannan when Malar's
marriage date is fixed.
In a bizarre climax, you have an auto driver stopping Malar's marriage to Arun.
The comedy scenes involving Kannan's buddies are so crude that they defy description.
In Roja Malare, Director Jayamurugan has delivered a poor excuse for entertainment. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
